When I was younger I always felt that something about how I communicated was different. I was different. I wasn’t really part of anything. Being first generation Filipinx American, I lived in a bilingual household but only spoke English. I adapted to hearing/understanding my parents/relatives when they spoke Tagalog (one of the many native Filipinx dialects) by learning to read their tone, their body language and inflection. I learned to cope. As I grew older I used this way of coping throughout my relationships, but always felt misunderstood.
There was a language, a perspective I had that always felt overlooked, unheard or ignored.It made me feel outside of things ALL the time.
During the first day of my training I knew I would hold onto this work forever. It offered a unique approach to connection with permission for any one to show up just as they are.
Finding this work has brought me back to who I am, uncovering parts of me I did not know existed. I knew that continuing to work in the world of commercial photography just was no longer for me.
Integrative Life Therapy is the best way for me to explain just what this work did for me. It offered me a place to integrate ALL parts of me that felt unnoticed or under valued in other aspects of my life.
My intention for offering this work is to provide a place for people to connect to themselves on a regular basis, and continue to develop their own awareness of self as a valuable source of information.
